DJ Slim invaded Kumasi with a tall list of musicians both mainstream and upcoming. The event which was held at Baba Yara Sports Stadium saw a turn-up of thousands of people. DJ Slim is known to be a huge force that brings artistes into the limelight. So for him to put up a concert, it made sense that he made the platform an avenue for the upcoming musicians to exhibit their talent to the thousands that had gathered. The stage was opened by hardworking rising acts such as Bantama Kings Club (BKC) artistes Kofi Jamar, Obey and Sketchy, also Boss Bouncy and Slim Biggie YO, Hotboy DNA, Ratty, Amerado, Braa Benk, Ayesem, Lord Paper, and a host of others. The place was turned up to a thousand degrees when artistes including Flowking Stone, Mr Eazi, Yaa Pono, Gemini, Edem, Eno, Cabum, Ko-Jo Cue, Shaker, Joey B and Darkovibes set the place ablaze with their performances. Steeze Hub was there to capture the moments. Enjoy…

Ko-Jo Cue & Shaker To Launch “Pen & Paper” Album With Concert This Saturday

BBnZ Live acts Ko-Jo Cue and Shaker have joined efforts, talent, creativity and everything in between to produce a full body of work for Hip-Hop enthusiasts in Ghana and around the world. Shaker who has been singing a lot lately, making hits such as “M’adakraa”, and gaining the title King Hook was influenced by his label mate Ko-Jo Cue to take it back to the days of rapping. Together, the two rap beasts have manufactured a 12-track album, with the title “Pen & Paper.”

When they dropped the first single off the project, thus the track titled “Pen & Paper”, social media went wild, in reaction to the brilliance of the video, lyricism and delivery displayed on it. It even got wilder when fans realized they’re getting a full body of work from the artistes. Speaking in an interview on Pulse Chat, the Oseikrom president, Ko-Jo disclosed that the title was inspired by the fact that before writing a rap song, you have to write the bars down using pen and paper. The album features “Odo” hitmaker KiDi, “Grind Day” crooner Kwesi Arthur, “My Baby” hitmaker Magnom, and Rumor, formerly of Skillions Records.

Birth of an Electronic Dance Music Community in Ghana

It’s been barely two months since the debut of Electric Vibez Carnival was held at the popular Chale Wote festival (an annual street art festival). The organisers of this carnival in association with EdmVibez.com and Level 8 Lounge have come up with another event to strengthen the Electronic Dance Music (EDM) community here in Ghana. This event, Networking in the sky : Electronic Dance Music community, is an event designed to bring producers, artistes, record labels, entertainment bloggers, graphic artistes, festival lovers, edm enthusiasts, etc. together to network, get to know each other, share ideas, and discuss the best ways to promote our African values in the Electronic Dance Music spectrum.

EDM is a broad range of percussive electronic music genres made largely for nightclubs, raves, and festivals. EDM is generally produced for playback by disc jockeys (DJs) who create seamless selections of tracks, called a mix, by segueing from one recording to another. EDM producers also perform their music live in a concert or festival setting.

The event will have Mr. Benjamin le Brave, founder off Akwaaba Music, and Mr. Green Gafacci (a renowned producer) as panelists to lead discussions on promoting EDM in our local music market and means to help develop the EDM community. Also representing will be the Excuse Our Music (EOM) Collective, with special performances from a number of talented artistes currently not publicised.

The list of guest appearances from the Ghanaian music industry and EDM industry as a whole is endless. In view of that this is a huge opportunity to network and build connections.

The event will be held at Level 8 lounge, located at the 8th floor of the Airport One Square Building, in Airport City on Wednesday, 4th October 2017, and it starts at 7 pm.
